Description:

This year marks 70 years of marriage for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip. This extraordinary milestone deserves an equally magnificent numismatic tribute – which is why Downies is delighted to present the dazzling GB 2017 £5 Platinum Wedding Anniversary 1oz Gold Proof, straight from the British Royal Mint.

Struck to the British Mint's exacting Proof standards from 1oz of 22-carat gold, this exquisite Proof is as exclusive as it is eye-catching, with its maximum worldwide mintage a miniscule 1,375. With so few available, however, we urge you to act quickly, or risk missing out on celebrating this unprecedented, once-in-a-lifetime moment.


In 1947, the royal couple were newlyweds in a post-WWII world. Now, they're great-grandparents, and their marriage is in the history books as the British royal union of the longest standing. The coin's obverse design by Etienne Millner contains an unusual double effigy: both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are pictured in profile, gazing forward, a nod to their commitment to the continued prosperity of their country. The reverse design by John Bergdahl shows both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip on horseback, a pastime greatly enjoyed by the royal couple. Notes Bergdahl, “The Queen is riding her favourite horse … and appears very serene, while Prince Philip's horse is seen pulling to one side … a reflection perhaps of their different natures.”

For a lucky few, this stunning British legal tender issue will make an excellent keepsake or gift – but its mintage of 1,375 will not last long, especially given its excellent presentation. Housed within official Royal Mint packaging and accompanied by a booklet, this Proof is destined to be loved and cherished for the years to come.
